Protests Flare in Tehran as Opposition Disputes Vote

That's the headline on the lead story in The Times today. Oddly,it seems to me this is how a free people react to a stolen election. Will they settle down and "get over it"? Probably they'll be forced to by the authorities, but at least they'll remember that their votes were taken from them. In the past, we've felt superior to voting riots in places like Iran. Anymore,not so much. Americans simply laid down and let the vote stealers have the White House. And look what happened. Really I'm not sure which way is better, as long as the Army follows the powers that be and not the people. And I'm not sure an Army that thinks for itself is the best solution. Especially with all the arms our population has.
